Need some grilling inspiration? Here's a delicious recipe, courtesy of Del Monte.
(Makes 6 (2 kabob) appetizer servings)
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons lime juice, divided
3 tablespoons lite soy sauce, divided
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into (24) 1-inch pieces
Ground pepper to taste
2 cups Del Monte Gold® Extra Sweet Pineapple Chunks
1 medium Del Monte® red bell pepper, cut into (24) 1-inch squares
½ large Del Monte® sweet onion, cut into (24) 1-inch pieces
To make basting sauce, in a small bowl whisk together honey, 2 tbsp. lime juice, and 2 tbsp. soy sauce until smooth.
Sprinkle chicken pieces with remaining 1 tbsp. of lime juice and soy sauce. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Marinate 15 to 30 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Thread chicken, pineapple, red pepper, and onion alternately on 12 (6-7-inch) skewers. Discard and leftover marinade. Brush lightly with peanut oil.
Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning to cook all sides. Brush with basting sauce the last 5 to 10 minutes. Serve any remaining sauce over kabobs.
For a spicy variation, omit ground pepper and sprinkle chicken with Jamaican Jerk seasoning to taste.
So fire up the grill, and remember your fruit and veggies!
